Parking at Riverside House

There are only 9 visitor parking spaces at Riverside House situated at the front of the building. Contact your host to find out if one will be allocated to you.

Spaces are available for Blue Badge holders.

These spaces are not available for LGSS Workforce and Development training courses.

Temporary closure of Midsummer Meadow Car Park

The car park at Midsummer Meadow is closed for construction of a bridge for approximately 12 months.

The nearest car park to Riverside House will be St John’s multi-storey in Victoria Promenade which is around 15 minutes’ walk away.

Another option would be to park in the Mayorhold car park in the town centre and catch one of the buses that travel from Northgate bus station along the Bedford Road. There is a bus stop very close to Riverside House. Look for services 1, 4, 5, 23, 51, 108 or X4.
